Camping opportunities for special needs persons at Camp Hope

by | Aug 5, 2021 | Higher Education and Campus Ministry

Presented by the DSC Board of Camping and Retreat Ministries




Camp Hope serves cognitively impaired or developmentally disabled and ambulatory persons, ages 14 years to 80 years – regardless of religious background.

Our theme is a play on Dr. Seuss: “ IF I RAN CAMP HOPE.” Experience new adventures and explore your faith as we enjoy crafts, music, nature, worship, outdoor activities geared to all levels of ability dance, a special movie, a campfire circle, a talent show and so much more! We have fun activities with a caring staff of counselor “Buddies” on an approximate one-on-one ratio with their campers. We have lodge room accommodations with bunk beds and attached restrooms.

Triangle Y Ranch Camp and Retreat Center is located near Oracle, AZ on the north side of the Catalina Mountains. Click here to see the Google map.
